Yalikavak is situated on the North West tip of the peninsula and the overland journey from Bodrum provides spectacular scenery for the voyager as the road climbs up mountain ranges presenting panoramic views across fertile valleys to the sea. At the mountain's apex there is a windmill museum and a viewing point providing unbroken vistas of both the north and south bays. One of the largest residential resorts on the peninsula, the town is becoming ever more popular as an alternative to Bodrum. An influx of investment in the area has provided careful, exciting new developments, not least the Port Bodrum Yalikavak Marina complex with its 2,500 capacity open-air amphitheatre, designer shops, café/bars and eateries.
The town centre itself with its myriad of cobbled streets, white washed bougainvillea covered houses, renovated windmill, craft shops and colourful weekly market provides a charming contrast to this newly acquired modern sophistication, which nevertheless marries delightfully. This is an all year round resort with a heart that is unhurriedly relaxed and centred on its picturesque harbour. Dotted along the extensive promenade you will find waterfront cafes and restaurants specialising in fish and seafood dishes, the perfect location to watch the sunset for which Yalikavak is renowned. Set back from the water's edge you will find more traditional delicacies on offer and even a nightclub or two.
The coastline stretches for more than 29 km and is split into many small coves and bays. The main beach in Yalikavak town is long and narrow and is quieter the further away from the harbour end of the town. Its sparkling clean sea is one of the few remaining abodes of the endangered Mediterranean Seal and therefore a protected area. The area is rich in archaeological history with the ancient city of Sandima high up on the hills above the modern town being well worth a visit. Sandima was inhabited for more than 600 years by Ottomans and Turks and was only deserted in 1965 when the last villagers moved down to Yalikavak to cultivate citrus fruits and to work in the growing tourist industry.
Gumusluk is located midway along the western coast of the peninsula and the coastline here boasts stunning sea views. Historically, many fishermen settled and made their homes here and it is no different today with the azure vista making it very popular with locals and tourists alike.
Tucked into a picturesque and secluded cove is Gumusluk Fishing Village, a timeless reminder of bygone days. Here you can enjoy the evening sun going down from the waterfront restaurants serenaded by the gentle lapping of the tide. Feast on freshly caught local fish and seafood and meander through the street stalls offering unusual hand made gifts. Daylight hours also have their simple pleasures to offer with a sandy beach, colourful harbour, and rich archaeological history.
"Gumusluk means "of silver and derives its name from the silver mines situated behind the ancient city of Myndos, the site on which modern Gumusluk now stands. Much of the ancient city now lies beneath the waters surface and the remains can be seen whilst snorkelling although the area's archaeological status forbids diving with tanks. The sunken walls of the ancient city now form a causeway whereby you can reach Rabbit Island which is set snugly inside Gumusluk cove.
